A must visit to get the blessing of Baba. You a sit for meditation there. This place is relatively small, so make sure you visit sometime night to avoid the crowd.

Every Thursday after the Palki procession Baba used to spend his night in chavadi. He had a peculiar joola in which he jumps and rests thro the night. One must be blessed to be in chavadi for few minutes.

Situated across the road to Dwarkamai, separate entries for ladies and gents. Baba used to spend alternate nights at the Chavadi where he used to be taken in procession. Calm and peaceful.

Chavadi means “village office”, Sai Baba is intimately connected with this place, as he used to sleep here on alternate nights, during the last decade of his life. Around the time that Dwarkamai was renovated, Chavadi was also upgraded. The mud walls were neatly plastered, huge mirrors were hung, glazed tiles replaced the mud floor and glass chandeliers were suspended... More

It was a very good experience and we almost felt that Baba was with us when we visited Chavadi. It would be really good if the authorities could make it more disable-friendly.
